The words chic, petite, and fashionable, haven’t exactly been synonymous with smartwatches. But Garmin is looking to change all that with the circular and slim Lily.

Available in two models, the Classic and Sport, they boast a 34mm watch case, a 14mm band, T-bar lug style, patterned lens, and colour options. Each of the six different Lily watches having its own lens design that has been created to be subtle and textural.

Garmin calls the Lily “ideal for women seeking a fashion-forward alternative to what’s currently available on the smartwatch market”.

The Lily (Classic) comes in Cream Gold with a Black case, Cream Gold with a White case, and Dark Bronze with a Paloma Case. The Lily (Sport) comes in Gold with a White case, Midnight Orchid with a Deep Orchid case, and Rose Gold with a Light Sand case. Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem like Garmin is allowing uses to mix and match straps to watch faces yet.


Monitoring but also some just for women features

Like all smartwatches, the Lily handles smart notifications, appointments, syncs with an app on your smartphone and can also send your location to your emergency contacts for security and peace of mind.

With a battery that has up to five days of use, it is also able to monitor your health and fitness.

For example, Pulse Ox monitors stress levels, hydration, advanced sleep, and heart rate. Couple this with Body Battery, and you can keep an eye on your body’s current energy levels which can help with scheduling workouts, rest times and sleep. If users feel too stressed out, they can use Breathwork to go through a series of breaths and holds for focus and stress relief.

There are Sports apps for yoga, Pilates, cardio, treadmill, and more. Lily also connects to a compatible smartphone’s GPS to accurately track outdoor walks, runs and rides. Users can monitor activity throughout the day with step counting, calories burned, intensity minutes and more.

Women’s Health features, including menstrual cycle tracking and pregnancy tracking, giving moms-to-be a snapshot of their pregnancy alongside their other health, wellness and activity data.

Users can log pregnancy-related symptoms, track baby movement, blood glucose levels, create customisable reminders, receive exercise, and nutrition tips. Active moms-to-be can also adjust heart rate alerts and pause training status to suit their activity levels during their pregnancy.
